And so we wait...

So we've had a busy week - Bestamor visiting from Norway, nativities, seeing Father Christmas, feeding reindeer, Christmas baking galore. You name it, we've done it.

Feeding the Reindeer at the Garden Centre

Meeting Father Christmas!
Thrilled to be Mary in the nativity play!
Cuddles with Bestamor from Norway!
Decorating the Christmas tree!
Wrapping up warm for wintery days!
My little gingerbread lady is obsessed with puzzles at the moment!
Looking forward to time with Papa!

It's been a whirlwind week, but a fabulous one, and we are now looking forward to cosying up at home with family and celebrating the arrival of the Saviour. Three candles on the advent candle are now lit, there are now only 4 more pockets on the advent calendar to open, our nativity scene is nearly complete, biscuits are baked, presents are wrapped, cards are written.

And so it arrives... the time we've been waiting for... remembering the arrival of our King.

These next few days are pretty special for us, so I'm not going to be blogging in my usual way; instead, I'll be posting a single picture a day to record this "most wonderful time of the year."

Wishing you all a blessed Christmas and praying you too will search for God's son this Christmas and find yourself bowing at his manger, just like those Wise Men so many years ago.

"Mary will give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name "Jesus" because he will save His people from their sins."
Matthew 1:21

Hallelujah! What a Saviour!
